This New Cafe Will Offer Fellatio With Its Espresso
Jonesing for some oral sex with your caffeine? Soon you'll be able to satisfy both cravings at the same time – at least if you're a straight man living in Switzerland. A new cafe is set to open by the end of the year in Geneva, where sex work is legal and regulated, and will allow patrons to order a coffee drink and then use an iPad to choose a sex worker who will perform fellatio. In this episode of the HuffPost Love + Sex Podcast, Noah & Carina chat about this new cafe and ponder exactly how much money someone should charge – or pay – for a blow job. Later, Carina interviews Jillian Keenan, the author of Sex with Shakespeare: Here's Much to Do with Pain, but More with Love, which explores Keenan’s spanking fetish and how reading the great British playwright as erotica came to her rescue while she was learning to accept and explore her own sexuality. Finally they answer listener questions, including one from a man who wants to know why he hates cuddling with his girlfriend after sex. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

What Is Sexsomnia And Why Is It Dangerous?
You've heard of sleepwalking, night terrors and possibly even people who have sleep-related eating disorders, but you may have never heard of sexsomnia, a condition that causes people to engage in sexual activities -- ranging from making sexual noises to pelvic thrusting to masturbation to sexual intercourse -- while they’re asleep. The condition, which falls under the umbrella of parasomnia, or disorders that cause abnormal or unusual behavior of the nervous system during sleep, is still relatively unknown to the general public. Sexsomnia, in some cases for some people, can be experienced as an unusual or perhaps annoying event, but in rarer, more extreme cases, it can be the cause of sexual assault or molestation, which can make being diagnosed with the disorder -- or being in a relationship, whether romantic or familial -- troubling and even dangerous to all those affected.

Can A Man Enjoy Sex With Other Men And Still Be Straight?
If a man is having sex with other men, he must be gay or bi or somewhere on the queer spectrum, right? Not necessarily. At least not according to some men who feel their sexual activities and their sexual identities don't have to -- and do not -- align.

What's it like to be a Sex Tourist?
Sex tourism can mean many different things depending on who you are and what you're looking to find. For some people, booking a vacation that will center around a sexual event, like San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair, allows them to meet other people who have similar sexual interests. For others, traveling for sex means not having to worry about running into someone they know while in an intimate position. And some people just want the thrill of visiting a place like Amsterdam's Red Light District that welcomes and encourages sexual exploration. In this episode of HuffPost's Love+Sex Podcast, co-hosts Carina Kolodny and Noah Michelson take a virtual trip around the world to learn more about sex tourism and what motivates people to hit the road in search of sexual adventures.

Is YA Fiction A Better Sex Educator Than Sex Ed Class?
Where do teens turn when they aren't getting the information they want and need from their schools (or often parents)? For many, it's their local bookstore or library. In this episode of The Huffington Post's Love+Sex Podcast, co-hosts Carina Kolodny and Noah Michelson explore how young adult (YA) literature -- from classics like Clan of the Cave Bear to more recent favorites like Twilight -- is providing many teens with information about sex and sexuality they aren't getting anywhere else. Kolodny and Michelson chatted with Emily M. Danforth, the author of The Misadventures of Cameron Post, Megan McCafferty, the author of the New York Times-bestselling Jessica Darling series which includes Sloppy Firsts and Amy Lang, the founder of Birds And Bees And Kids, which helps parents figure out how to approach that important -- and often intimidating -- talk about sex with their kids.
